Influences: Jesus, coffee, and Almost any music I hear. I've read several profiles and been excited about their influences, so I thought I'd list just a few here even though I honestly think it's too many to narrow. I grew up with a sister who was a teen in the 70s. Queen, Styx, Gordon Lightfoot, Jackson Brown, Beatles, Barry Mannilow, I was a teen in the 80s Men at Work, U2, XTC, Paul Simon, Anything on the radio Early Christian pop: Phil Keaggy, Leslie Phillips later: Christian music Chris Tomlin, Matt Maher, female country artists like Allison Craus, Casey Chambers, Just so much more I can't even think of them. :)
Please feel free to contact me directly:
I am a singer / songwriter in Southern California.
I've been writing music since 1989 or so, but writing under the mistaken impression that I could only write a song when I was inspired. I'm just recently learning how to chase and court and flirt and beg and encourage inspiration.
I've been singing since I was 6 years old primarily in church.
I will try playing almost any instrument, but my main instruments are guitar and voice.
Rusty! Was just thinking about you last night hoping you were coming back. Saw you posting on SoundCloud and hoped that sour collaboration you had last year didn’t push you away entirely. Welcome back my friend!
Welcome back! Wishing you a very productive FAWM!
Hey dude - keep chasing and courting, flirting, begging, and encouraging. It yields good fruit. I'm looking forward to getting a taste of it.
Thanks for the greetings! Yeah, was in a 2 vehicle collision on an icy road last week. Occupants of both vehicles are okay, both vehicles are not so okay. Looking forward to FAWM and hearing what you come up with.
Hey Rusty..you in this year?
